Says planned maintenance. Is this true - was there a warning?

"WE'RE SORRY

Our site is undergoing planned maintenance and is currently unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience."

I don't play there but seems an odd time for a "planned" maintenance.

Scheduled maintenance at most books is usually in the middle of the night when few events are going on. If something goes wrong than no big deal. OP posted at 5:10 PM Eastern time. I can't recall ever seeing a planned maintenance in the evening like that.

I'm being told that it started late last night. So it's at least feasible that they started maintenance last night and it's running long (either expectedly or unexpectedly). But you'd think there would have been a notice if that were the case.

Hopefully just a bad maintenance job. If I recall recently, Bovada had a disastrous past maintenance. Though with Bovada, you were more confident that they would be back up. Sportsbook.ag, who stopped taking new customers for a while now, somewhat concerns me :|

This has happened to Sportsbook.ag before. In fact, outages like this has happened to just about every offshore sportsbook I can think of at one point or another. Chances are it will be fine.

Why would the fact that they don't take new customers concern you? To me it shows the strength of their customer base. If a book was planning on closing up shop wouldn't they want as much new money as possible? If they all of the sudden started taking new customers and offering ridiculous sign up bonuses, that would concern me.

They haven't taken new customers in like 4-5 years. Not worried at all. Just want to re-up. They are offering 50% nearly every week.

True. I definitely agree with the last point.

Wow, they are D- rated, blacklisted site?

I would be worried if I had money in there.

Even if the site was still working, I would worry.

That rating is from a long time ago and does not accurately reflect upon how the site operates today.

Is sportsbook.com the same as sportsbook.ag?

Has it ever been down for 'maintenance' this long? I suspect that if they don't open for this weekend's NCAAB, then it's curtains for them.

For over 10 years people have been saying "This book is about to go out of business! Watch out!". People would always withdraw before the Superbowl because March was stiff season. And how many went bust?

All you need to know about the current crop of books is that COVID hit ~ March 2020, all sports halted at the worst possible time of year, and yet no one exited.

Books are not technical wizzes. This isn't amazon.com. Their sites go down. BM/BOL all regularly have technical problems.

Agree 100%. Name the last time a book as large as Sportsbook.ag ran off with funds. You'd have to go back to 2014 or earlier
